A game after earning his first career double-digit goal season, Jay Beagle has suffered an upper body injury. In the second period against the Rangers, Beags took a rough run from Dan Girardi in the neutral zone.
As Beagle reached for the puck, a charging Girardi hit Beagle in the left shoulder. The hit followed through to Beagle’s head. The Caps forward spun in the air and landed hard on the ice.
Beagle went to the locker room, but came back for two more shifts late in the second period. He did not return for the third.
Girardi was not penalized for the hit. During the second intermission, Mike Milbury praised it as a “good, hard cheap shot,” which is self-contradictory.
#Caps Jay Beagle sustained an upper body injury and will not return to tonight's game. He will be re-evaluated tomorrow.
